After the first game of the season was turned around into a great start for Arsenal, people kept saying that the Gunners would not be able to handle the pressure. But Arsenal kept going and kept proving them wrong. When the season finishes, we will have spent the most weeks at the top.
Scant consolation, I know, but it was not pressure that caused our downfall, it was the lack of players, mainly due to the desperately unlucky string of injuries and partly due to Wenger’s failings in the transfer market. Pressure, Arsenal can deal with, so for Roberto Martinez to suggest that he would rather be chasing than leading is daft, as alluded to by Arsene Wenger in a Sky Sports report. .......Read the full article here
It has been a strange season for Santi Cazorla with Arsenal this season. The Spaniard who was so brilliant in his debut season with the Gunners has failed to hit the same heights that earned him the fans’ vote for Arsenal Player of the Year last time, for whatever reasons, but he turned the clock back with a Man of the Match showing against the Hammers. .......Read the full article here
Mathematically speaking, Arsenal should not really be the favourites to finish above Everton and qualify for the Champions League for the 17th season in a row. The Toffees are thge form team and if they win all their games they will finish above us.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been in terrible form and cannot afford a single slip, but that seems to have been forgotten by the bookies and football pundits. Gary Neville, never the biggest fan of the Gunners, even admitted in a Sky Sports report that he thinks we now have the edge over Roberto Martinez and his players. What a difference a couple of games make, eh? .......Read the full article here
When Arsenal went behind tonight to West Ham, scant minutes before the halftime whistle, nobody would have been happier than Roberto Martinez and his Everton players. But that joy was not to last for long and, just as Podolski’s quickfire leveller knocked the stuffing out of the Hammers, I think it will do the same for the Toffees.
They are now in a position where they have something to lose, knowing that they cannot afford one slip-up and that they must win every game, because the Gunners now look like they will. We have renewed confidence and all four of our remaining matches look very winnable, whereas Everton host an in-form Crystal Palace, Man United and Man City as well as travelling to Southampton. .......Read the full article here
The high of Arsenal reaching the FA cup final and having a great chance to put all the media talk of a trophy drought behind us, could be seriously diluted tomorrow unless the Gunners see off a West Ham side that has been in decent form recently.
A win over the Hammers will put all the pressure back on to Roberto Martinez and Everton, who are now pushing us hard for that fourth place finish and our German striker Lukas Podoldski is well aware that failing to secure that final Champions League place would be nothing short of a nightmare, as a Sky Sports report reveals. .......Read the full article here
Whatever you think about Olivier Giroud, every Arsenal fan should be thankful that the big Frenchman has not joined the injury crisis and we should pray that stays the same until the end of the season. We also need the striker to be in a decent frame of mind for the next few weeks, because the alternative is Yaya Sanogo and that will not cut it.
The lanky young French forward did some good things against Wigan at Wembley, just as he impressed when he started against Bayern Munich and Liverpool. But the problem is that he is raw and badly in need of a goal. 10 Arsenal games without a goal is telling on his confidence and his finishing is getting worse all the time. .......Read the full article here
Santi Cazorla has made a statement that I am sure will rock a few Arsenal hearts and test the minds of others. In a recent interview with an independent reviewer, reporting for Sport360.com, the Spaniard suggested that he would consider moving to another club if Arsenal continue to fail. As he approaches 30. the midfield maestro is running out of time to add to his single intertoto cup winner’s medal and that is weighing on his mind. .......Read the full article here
If Only They Knew by Desire
My name is Desire. All this time I was always scared of writing an Arsenal article as people would criticize you for even attempting. I found out about Just Arsenal from a friend, think it was year 2012 if not early 2013. Since then I always log in daily, reading chats and enjoying comments. I always think it’s funny when another supporter thinks he is bigger than another. .......Read the full article here
Tables turn for Wenger once again! by Ash
Since the turn of the year Arsenal have taken a measly 12 points from the last 30 available, meaning that we have recorded victory in less than half the games played in the Premier League since the start of 2014. It’s a horrific statistic but one that is unfortunately reality, and thus this statistic goes some way to showing exactly how Arsenal have managed to spend a total of 128 days at the summit of the Premier League but all of a sudden find themselves in a battle for fourth place once again. .......Read the full article here
It is hard for Arsenal fans to find any positives to take from yesterday’s dismal defeat at the hands of Everton, especially as it has put us in very real danger of dropping out of the elite European competition that is the Champions League.
There were a few positives, though, which we can look at in the cold light of day. Wojciech Szczesny put his recent shaky displays behind him and kept the Gunners from getting another heavy drubbing, while young Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also found his form again and looked dangerous when he came on. But by far the biggest plus point was the return of our star man Aaron Ramsey. .......Read the full article here
Everton 3 v 0 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
Another horrible away performance from the Gunners resulted in a damaging 3-0 loss to fellow ‘fourth placed trophy’ contenders Everton.
The fact Ramsey gets our Man of the Match says it all. The Ox didn’t do a half bad job either, rattling the bar late on. Why on earth Wenger decided to wait so long to make the substitutions is beyond me.
We asked our readers who we should really be blaming for the loss, Wenger or the players? We discussed these thoughts here, we are interested to hear your views below in the comments. .......Read the full article here
Wenger is Arsenal’s man according to Gunners legend! by Ash
David Seaman, notorious for being one of the best ever Arsenal goalkeepers, was an influential part of Arsene Wenger’s glory day winning teams and although those players have of course moved on from the game, Wenger is still very much here and present at Arsenal.
Times have dramatically changed, in finances, in the way the game is played and the professionalism of football all together, however some will state that Wenger is still stuck in the old days. Seaman however thinks otherwise and in this tough time where the Arsenal manager’s future is up in the air, he was quick to show his backing towards his former manager. .......Read the full article here
